I have been told that LouAna Coconut oil has trans fat. The label clearly says No trans fat and lists 0 in the nutritional facts. Where or how do I find out?

I would go with the label.
mini goals:
170 - 50 pounds gone! (reached October 2, 2010)
155 - no longer overweight! (reached January 22, 2011)
145 - 75 Pounds gone! (reached May 14, 2011)
135 - ultimate goal weight!

While food manufacturers are allowed to put "0g trans fat per serving" if the amount of trans fat is below .5g, I don't think that's the case here. Normally, you want to look at the ingredients list for the word "hydrogenated" and avoid those things like the plague. The label for LouAna Coconut Oil does not say that it's hydrogenated coconut oil, so you should be fine.

Yeah, I agree with GilmoreGirl. Not that labels could NEVER be mistaken, but they are required to be accurate and must answer to the FDA if they are not, while whoever you heard this info from may or may not have ANY facts whatsoever to back their statement up.

ps, unsolicited advice alert! Laughing If you're looking at the coconut oil for nutritional purposes (as opposed to just preferring it for other reasons), I would recommend you look at a less-processed variety. There are some good cold-pressed kinds that have great health benefits that might be lost in the heavier refining (and the fact that the source material is dried rather than fresh coconut) of Louann. FYI!
